Glitterville's Handmade Halloween is a collection of funky Halloween holiday projects with a fun-house feel that will have you crafting right up until the end of October. Fill your Halloween party with these frighteningly festive decorations. The book includes instructions for 20 Halloween craft projects that you can make with the simplest of materials. Just some glitter, clay, pipe cleaners and imagination are all you need to make these fun-filled crafts.

Glitterville's Handmade Halloween is the creation of Stephen Brown, the designer behind the Glitterville gift and decoration line and a judge on TLC's Craft Wars. The whole book is infused with Brown's unique and quirky sense of style. Each project is introduced by a wacky poem about the craft, and all of the decorations in the collection have a cohesive feel. Brown loves bright colors, goofy faces, and skinny limbs made of materials like florists' wire and chenille sticks. This gives his projects a bright, zany look that can be a little unnerving--perfect for Halloween!

Glitterville's Handmade Halloween includes a variety of different projects for Halloween, from garlands and ornaments to candy apples and cupcake picks. Put all of the crafts from this book together, and you could throw a whole Halloween party all in Brown's kooky style. My favorite project was the Spooky Forest Sticks and Orange Candy Apples. I've never seen such a creative spin on this classic fall treat. Brown makes his candy apple sticks out of clay and molds them and paints them to look like twigs with faces on them. His apples are covered in sticky orange-tinted candy rather than the classic red or caramel.

If you're bored by the same old spooky Halloween decorations you can find in any party store or craft book, Glitterville's Handmade Halloween is for you! These crazy, whimsical craft projects will keep Halloween cheerful and fun.
